A Message from Dean Rimer
The Gillings School of Global Public Health is the top public school of public health, according to the U.S. News & World Report 2019 ranking. Our mission is to improve public health, promote individual well-being and eliminate health inequities across North Carolina and around the world. We anticipate threats to the public’s health and accelerate solutions. We’re committed to excellence in all we do – and to keeping our students at the center.
As the world works to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, researchers and practitioners from every discipline at the Gillings School are turning their expertise into action to support the pandemic response. From vaccine development to clinical trials for treatment; from breast feeding guidance for new mothers diagnosed with COVID-19 to ensuring kids are fed while schools are closed; from advising local and state health departments to tracking the spread: This is public health in the time of coronavirus.
